(a) To promote and improve the role of sports shooting in New South Wales;
(b) To educate young people in the skills of hunting, shooting and proper care and safe handling of firearms;
(c) To encourage all hunters to abide by a strict code of ethics;
(d) To work for a better understanding between landholders and association members;
(e) To actively advocate game conservation and assist appropriate authorities in game management programs; and,
(f) To provide an effective and credible voice on behalf of all New South Wales shooters to the wider public, community leaders and authorities.
